Google Pay is offering a sweet deal right now at Target as they’re giving $21 back when spending $50 or more.
- Spend $50+ at Target & get $21 cashback when paying with Google Pay.
- Our referral links – you’ll earn $21 as will we if you use one of our links and newly sign up for Google Pay and opt in to Google Pay Rewards.
- Expires December 31, 2020.
- Activation required.
- Offer valid at Target both in-store & online.
- Limit 1 reward.
- Not valid on transactions made using the Target RedCard.
$21 back on $50 of spend is a 42% discount which is an excellent offer at Target. Even if you don’t need anything from Target right now, this is working when buying gift cards from Target, so it’s effectively a 42% discount on any gift card sold there.
You might need to update the Google Pay app in order to see this offer. It wasn’t showing up on my phone when opening Google Pay, so I updated it in the Play Store. I still didn’t see the offer when opening the app back up after updating it, but then realized it had downloaded an additional app to my phone. There are now apps for Google Pay and GPay on my phone – it’s GPay where this offer is showing up.
Note that this is a card-linked offer, so you don’t have to actually use the GPay app itself to make the payment – you just have to ensure your payment card is enrolled in the Target offer in the app. That’s great as it means you can pay with a card that earns more at Target, although Discover isn’t supported. I therefore enrolled an Amex Marriott card which is currently earning 8x at Target. I bought a $50 gift card and almost instantly received notification from Google Pay that I’d earned $21.
If you join Google Pay using a referral link, Google Pay will also give both parties $21 if you’re joining for the first time. That means you’d be getting back $42 on $50 of spend which is an even better deal.
